Heads-Up: "Quick Reply" feature available

Postby Angoid » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:58 pm

I've just turned on "Quick Reply."

Basically, whenever you view a topic to which you can reply, you'll see a new button marked "Quick Reply."
If you click on this, you'll get a reply box open up straight away which you can use to type a quick message - but it's not a fully-featured reply box.
I think this will be useful for the games and stories threads, but if you want a full-featured editor (colours, smilies, and so on) then use the normal Reply button as you would now.

If you're entering a response using QuickReply, and decide you need to go full-featured reply instead, then you can click on "Full Editor" at any point during yuor reply.
The full reply editor will then open up, taking any text you have just typed with it, thereby avoiding the need to re-type anything you have already entered.

Thanks Phantas,

I saw it when looking for another setting I thought we might benefit from, but on second thoughs it didn't seem as useful after all.
So I turned this on as I thought it would bring real benefit :)
